The official site has launched their HTML version of the new Thorgerson-designed webpage. The site loads much faster, especially for us poor souls deprived of broadband as of yet.
The site also lists five confirmed venues for the US promo tour this month (!). However, these are “private media showcases” and therefore tickets are not publicly available, with the exception of the Boulder show. However, the page is holding a 30-word essay contest to give away 2 tix and the opportunity to meet the band.
August 14th Los Angeles – Roxy Theater
August 16th Boulder – Fox Theater (Some public tickets available!)
August 18th Chicago – The Double Door
August 20th Minneapolis – Fine Line
August 22nd New York- Bowery Ballroom
Fergal has also updated his section, noting that the band has been practicing for the last several weeks and they plan to do many interviews this month as well. Of course, for all the details, don’t miss the official site.
